About the event
Lonnie Liston Smith (US) will grace Australian shores for the first time, bringing his 40-year-strong legacy to Red Bull Music Presents for an evening of enlightening, cosmic and modern jazz. Having worked alongside pioneers of the genre including Miles Davis, Pharaoh Sanders and Roland Kirk, Smith not only has an enduring influence among his peers, but his work continues to be an important backbone for sampling amid the world’s hip-hop community. Featured across hits from Jay-Z and Nas, to today’s new breed including Vince Staples and Joey Badass, Smith’s music and collaborations appear on over 230 tracks to date. Catch Lonnie and his New Cosmic Echoes at one of Melbourne’s signature late night spots The Night Cat for what is sure to be an unmissable night.
